Hi,

How was the digital instrument cluster?
Classy configurable? Or staid for sake ones?

The interior quality/ambience.
Did you feel it was closer to new Thar kind, or the XUV 300/Marazzo kind, or the Alturas kind?

How did the view from driver's seat feel like. Was the bonnet visible or not?

Thanks.

Well the interiors are much improved and due to usage of the light colour looks airy. It's better than what we have seen from M&M.

The engine was turned off so I am not sure about the display screen, but from this forum what I have gathered is that it's pretty impressive ( someone shared pics too) And should be customisable as well( assumption).

The bonnet end is not visible (like most other crossovers)

Quick question, did you observe any hint of a AWD or 4X4 or driving modes kind of a feature ? I am really wondering if Mahindra will bring the new XUV500 with AWD AT combination in next gen as the AWD variant has now been removed from their current line up of the 2020 BS6 updated model.

An 18/19 inch screen across the console to dashboard is what I heard for all 2021 launches

The spy shots reveal locking differential button with MT gearbox so there are good chances that AWD/4x4 is under testing, unless locking differential is provided with 2WD (like Ford Ranger XL 2.2 HI-RIDER 4X2), which is also pretty useful in some situation. (Although 2WD +locking diff is not much common).

Note that the switches are straight away taken from Thar 2020 to save some cost.

Thank you very much for the detailed observation Sir. I would like to know three things. It is understandable if you weren't able to see all the little details in this brief conversation.

1. Would all passengers get 3 point seatbelts or would they go the ususal (India spec) way of giving a lame 2 point lap belt?

2. Were you able to see if the test mule had Auto dimming inside rear view mirror?

3. Any mention of a head up display?

Thank you once again.

Switches don’t look very high quality. Mahindra needs to up its game in the cosmetics, fit and finish department.
The way our roads are devolving, soon AWD will become mandatory for any vehicle beyond a certain size.

Lots of New Videos coming in, looks very proportionate in videos (unlike Gravitas)

If you look carefully, when the XUV is overtaken, there is a small aperture below the mirrors, which shows the XUV500 might get the 360 Parking camera system!

Sharp eyes! When they are talking about Level 1 autonomous vehicle, something like the 360 degree camera should definitely be there.

Yeah, I reckon 360 camera will be there for sure - and we will see more and more of it in new vehicle launches.

Its easy to fit, is relatively inexpensive, and adds some actual value to the car.

Magnite, providing it in a value for money car, will start a new trend hopefully !

Proportions point to a handsome profile. Let's hope they do not go overboard with the design. Rear bumper looks almost flush fitted to the tailgate. Or is it the camo playing tricks?

If the XUV500 indeed comes with the AWD system then I will be very tempted to saving some cash by going for the Mahindra instead of the Compass. Let's see how next year pans out.

Touchscreen spied probably for the first time when it's active. The new spy shots show that one half of the touchscreen will be used for display of infotainment / access car settings or change them while the other half on the driver side, will act as MID.

As one can see in one of the pictures above, there is a differential lock/4X4 lock kind of a button. AWD should be certainly there. But I was reading speculative report saying the AWD variant may be introduced at a later date.
If Mahindra skips the AWD just like Tata, owing to lesser demand etc, it is indeed very sad.
